It was easy for us to migrate from on-premise Teradata to AWS Teradata

Pros and Cons

  • "I like writing preformance queries for preprocessing on AWS Cloud."
  • "I would like more security and speed."

What is our primary use case?

We have been using the on-premise PostgreSQL, and most of our data comes from SAP. We have all our Oracle logs being pushed to Teradata, which is where we take the data, then skim it. We pass it through whatever it is we are using, then turn it back to the customers. 

Therefore, our primary use case is to distribute the data across all types of commercial and personal consumers, making it available as fast as possible.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to distribute Teradata in different regions to increase availability. As we are slowly moving everything to AWS cloud, we haven't had to worry about anything.

What is most valuable?

I like writing preformance queries for preprocessing on AWS Cloud.

What needs improvement?

I would like more security and speed. These days, everyone is not just moving to cloud, but they are moving to clout. In a multi-cloud environment, you have to be cognizant of data transfer, bandwidth, and egress charges, not just from a performance and scalability point of view, but also how to keep costs low.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is fine. We did not see a lot of downtime while migrating. It was a pretty clean transfer from on-premise to the cloud.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is great. AWS is all about the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not used the technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Since we also use the AWS PostgreSQL, and some of our data is in there too, we came to the conclusion to move solutions within Teradata. Because already had the on-premise Teradata, it was easy for us to migrate from on-premise Teradata to AWS Teradata.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration of Teradata in our AWS environment was great. This lead us to use all the databases after making the move to AWS Cloud in Teradata.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't know about the pricing and licensing.

What other advice do I have?

Initially, the whole infrastructure was on-premise. For the past year, we have started moving over to the cloud. The support that we receive from AWS is great.

The on-premise version is fairly to use. We don't have to scale it up nor scale it down.

It helps us with connectivity and making sure the data is secure

Pros and Cons

  • "It is quick, secure, and has less hassles because we don't have to involve our networking team, infrastructure, etc. It is very easy to deploy and make market ready."
  • "I would like more security and speed."

What is our primary use case?

We have all our workloads on AWS.

How has it helped my organization?

Having Teradata in AWS:

  • Helps us with connectivity.
  • Making sure the data is secure.
  • Reduces the hops.
  • Helps us more with real-time data.

We had few reports which were taking more than 45 minutes. Then, with Teradata, we received results within minutes, and a few under a minute. We thought that something went wrong, and we hadn't done the work properly, but we saw the exact same results on both. So, our end users were pretty happy.

What is most valuable?

It is quick, secure, and has less hassles because we don't have to involve our networking team, infrastructure, etc. It is very easy to deploy and make market ready.

What needs improvement?

Teradata wants to come out of the hardware business and to run its own cloud on other public clouds. I think that is a great way to go. However, there are challenges to doing this. There are multiple layers of security and caching. E.g., if you have a lot of compute or a caching that will offload a lot of compute activity because it's already there, it will save its cycles for something which needs to be done. This way, you are offloading your compute, so you can go with a lesser capacity than a higher capacity. That is what this appliance does.  If they are moving off of the appliance, I am curious to see if their software will withstand the change, or will Teradata still run but need a bigger box?

I would like more security and speed. These days, everyone is not just moving to cloud, but they are moving to clout. In a multi-cloud environment, you have to be cognizant of data transfer, bandwidth, and egress charges, not just from a performance and scalability point of view, but also how to keep costs low.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any outages in one and a half years. That is a good statement.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not heard anyone complain about performance.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is pretty good. The response rate is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a bunch of legacy warehouses, which we wanted to consolidate, as well as stay up-to-date with warehousing options. This is why we moved into Teradata.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration were seamless for us.

We have multiple sources of data, so Teradata has a lot of connectors which pulls all our data from different workloads. The integration works really well.

What about the implementation team?

We had help with the integration and configuration.

What was our ROI?

When your customer is happy, dollars and cents sort of blur. Our return on investment would be customer satisfaction, which I think is priceless.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We had a lot of parties involved when purchasing from the AWS Marketplace. They are very flexible and aggressive in trying to close the deal. They are good at what they have to offer and listening to the customer. It's a two-way street.

In this day and age, we want to get things done quickly. So, we go to the AWS Marketplace.
Also, we have a consistent experience with Teradata usage on its cloud, so we already know the product.

For what Teradata has to offer, their price is comparable to its competitors.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Redis and Teredata, doing PoCs with both. We had more support from Teradata to start with, and we were new to both. We were not in a situation to tell which one was good, because both were new to us. We just had more support from Teradata to help us see the results on what we are looking for.

What other advice do I have?

Do your homework before you make a decision. Everyone is different; every shop is different. That is what makes it fun to be in IT.

When you look for a solution, you will uncover many advantages. All those hidden things which are not clear initially when you do a cost analysis. A cost analysis is something that you have to do from the get-go, but it also has to be an ongoing process. Your workloads change, requirements change, everything changes, so it has to be a constant feedback.

We have used both the on-premise and AWS versions.
